Designated access across private land to the west central Bridgers. Please respect private land and stay on the designated access. There is a parking area at the end of the road. The last one mile of road is very rough and is not suitable for low clearance vehicles.

Description

This trail is most popular for target practice, motorcycling, and fall hunting. Once past the somewhat trashy trailhead the hike opens up into gorgeous, steep, not oft-used country that extends all the way to the Bridger Ridge Traverse.

From the "antiqued" trailhead follow the rutted and tracked out trail into deciduous tree cover up a narrow v-shaped valley. A short distance later you'll reach a semi-headwall to gain a series of switchbacks. A short rest period across flat-ish terrain is followed by more switchbacks as the valley curves northward. Continue gaining the valley keeping your eye open for mule deer until the final push of switchbacks bring you to the Bridger Foothills Trail and Sacagawea Peak.
